Are you sure eating nuts can help to lose weight?!

That was our first reaction when we did some research on nuts and seeds. We were indeed just as skeptical about the term 'healthy snacks' and so we had to find proof to convince ourselves and also to justify our snacking habits.

First of all, nuts and seeds are full of fats. Good fats.These unsaturated fat are beneficial to our hearts and help to reduce cholesterol.


Secondly, they contain high content of dietary fiber and proteins that helps with your energy level and bowel movements. Not only that, the fiber makes you feel full faster while the proteins keeps you feeling full for a longer period of time. They make you feel satisfied so you would not be craving for other unhealthy food. This makes people less likely to overindulge and thus, losing weight becomes easier.


Besides nuts and seeds, fish, poultry, eggs, beans, yoghurt, and other low fat products can help to lose weight too. A noteworthy point is that nuts and seeds are the only few snacks in the list and they are suitable snacks for kids too.


A snack that is healthy, tasty, fulfilling and also nutritious? That’s our dream come true, and hopefully for you too. Start snacking healthily today.
